The waterfall braid: even beginners can braid their hair this way
Braiding your hair into artistic braids is one of the hottest hair trends of spring. You haven't really dared to try braided hairstyles yet? With these instructions, the waterfall braid is guaranteed to work! It looks more difficult and elaborate than it actually is.
For many braided hairstyles, the hair should be at least shoulder length, but the beauty of the waterfall braid is that it also works with chin-length or even relatively short hair and conjures up a mega effect. Even if you have curly hair, this is the perfect braid for you - most of the hair can be left loose and your curls still look great.
Braiding your hair is child's play with these step-by-step instructions:
Comb your hair well, pull your usual parting and separate two sections of hair at the front of your head on one side of your choice.
Cross the front section of hair over the other along the hairline so that it leads away from your face.
Add a new strand of hair from the top of your head and let it fall onto the strand you just pulled away from your face.
The third section of hair is laid over this "hanging" strand so that the optical waterfall effect is created.
Take the bottom section of hair and pull it over the waterfall section. Then you separate another strand at the top of your head to be able to do another waterfall part.
Let these fall back through the other sections of hair.
Repeat the process until your waterfall braid is the length you want – the effect is best when it goes to the back of your head.
When you have reached your desired end, extend the braided section of hair into a regular three-strand braid and secure with a clear elastic.
To hide the braided end, tuck it under the loose hair at the back of your head. You can easily fix it by crossing two bobby pins in an X-shape.
Style the remaining hair loosely over the pinned back braid – your waterfall braid is done on one side of the head! If you like, you can now do exactly the same on the other side and fix the two braids at the back of your head.
